From the Hospitality team:  An evening is being arranged on Saturday 5 October at the Village Bryndwr.  This will be a pot luck dinner and a chance to hear Martin and Anne talk about their trip and see some images from their time away.  More details will follow.

Rev Heather Simpson is retiring from her time as Minister in Paeroa, and coming to live in Christchurch.  Her own home is unavailable until July 2020, so she would love to hear from anyone who would like a house sitter, or has a bach they would like to offer as an interim home, from the end of January to end of June 2020.  Even part of that time would be considered.  She is happy to live anywhere in the wider Canterbury area, preference Christchurch city.  Contact either office for Heather’s contact details.

Telling a story using photographs:  Exploring creative ways of using photographs to tell a story will be the subject of an interactive workshop at the Creative Nest at Papanui on Monday 21st October at 7pm.  This will include the digital manipulation and presentation of photographs, incorporating photos into text or other art work, as well as extra-digital ways of using photographs.  We will learn from each other, so bring your photos, your photographic projects or ideas and your digital device of choice (if you wish to use one).  You do not need to be a computer geek to participate!  All welcome.  A koha to cover costs would be appreciated.  Any questions to Claire Cruickshank.

A reminder that the Annual Meeting will be held at the conclusion of the service (followed by morning tea) at St Andrew’s on Sunday 13th October.
